AS OF JANUARY 2017 WE ARE NOW CLOSED.
We thank you for your support over the past 16 years...
IT'S TIME FOR US TO SAY GOODBYE...
To all of our wonderful customers,
As some of you may know, I have been running Groovy Chicks and Pirate Ships for the past 16 years. I put on my fairy wings when I was at uni and although I went on to finish my Psychology degree, I enjoyed running parties so much I just never stopped. It has been a challenging, fun and rewarding career. But I’m now lucky enough to be a mum to two beautiful boys aged 2 and 4 - and like so many mums out there, the struggle to balance work and ‘mum life’ has become almost impossible. The hours in the party and events industry are long, and consequently I rarely see my family. With my eldest starting school in a little over a year - I have decided that my role as a mother now has to be my number one priority - so at the end of this year, I will be closing Groovy Chicks and Pirate Ships, and we will not be re-opening in 2017.
This decision will not affect any bookings for 2016 - all parties and events will run completely as normal throughout November and December - right up until Christmas Day. We will not be taking any bookings for 2017. After Christmas our staff will have a well earned break and in January, I will start what I’m sure will be the tearful process of dismantling our party venue, ready for the premises to be re-leased.
I am sad to be leaving something that I have dedicated almost half of my life to - but also excited to have time to spend with my two little monsters and the freedom to perhaps embark on a new adventure! I am so grateful to all of our customers who have supported us over the years - and to the many, many wonderful staff I have had the pleasure of employing. Thank you to all of you. An extra special thanks also needs to go out to my mum - who has helped tirelessly with absolutely everything from the very beginning - and without whom I never would have survived.
If anyone has any questions about a booking, or our 2017 closure, please feel free to give me a call in our office. We will be here, as usual - right up until Christmas Day =)
In January I will start selling all of our costumes, furniture, equipment, craft supplies and everything else I have purchased over the years - if you are interested in this please follow our facebook page for updates of items for sale.
Thanks everyone - I wish you all the best of luck with your children’s parties in the future ;)
